Boiled Omelets

"I love this recipe because it is so quick, easy, and no mess to clean up. It's especially good when you have several kids over for breakfast, you can make the ingredients the night before. They can make their own. They turn out perfect every time! Good for campers too."

  1. We used this recipe on a camping trip and it worked perfectly. Everyone put in ingredients to their liking, and when done, they ate them right up. I don't remember the cooking time, but we just cooked them until they were done, easy enough to see in the plastic. Plus, and this is huge, there was no egg pan to try to clean, which made the trip more enjoyable for me. This is a keeper!!! Thanks for posting.
  2. I used freezer ziplocs and they melted... not sure if any more heavy duty ones exist. It took a long time to cook this, I will probably never make again.
  3. Very good and easy recipe/idea. It definitely helps to cut the time for a good breakfast for the family. I found that the boiling time was just too long of a wait for my family of 6 so I ended up throwing it in a pan but all in all I am planning on doing this again. I just will use the pan method instead of boiling. It helps to cut down on prep time in the mornings and thats what I love! Thank you so much.


I live in central Illinois with my husband. I have 4 grown married children. I have 16 beautiful grandchildren. I have 2 adorable great grandchildren (will have 3 as of next week) I am retired (if you can call it that). I own our local Freecycle (TM) Group. I am an Administrator on a Baptist Board with 8,000 members. I have a Prison Ministry. I also own an eBay store. Hmmm. Maybe I'm NOT retired. :) My main passions are God, my family, reading, growing plants (indoors and out), crocheting, and cooking. One of my pet peeves is buying a box that says "push in here to open" and it takes a hammer and chisel to get into it!!!
